That was the vital information I needed, but couldn't find anywhere  
on Dell's site. I noticed that not a single CPU upgrade that I saw on  
the Dell store mentioned which socket it was for. Even the "how to do  
a CPU upgrade" docs don't mention it.

So, anyone want to buy a nice pair of Low Voltage 5148 CPUs in full  
working order, recently pulled from a PE 1950 (which was upgraded to  
L5320 quads)?
